    43 Things That'll Make You Think, "Yes, A New Wardrobe Is Calling My Name"

    Just a few wardrobe essentials you'll wish you bought ages ago.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. A basic cropped tee with a twist — literally. The twist-front steps it up from a normal plain white tee, while it's still comfortable enough to lounge around the house in.

    Promising reviews: "I got this shirt to workout in/lounge in. It is very comfy for both... the stretch and the front knot is very [cute]. Definitely a keep!" —Elizabeth Redwine

    "OK so I wouldn't say that I'm a huge fam of crop tops...BUT I have been wanting a crop to wear with high waisted midi skirts and dresses and voila!! The shirt is actually pretty thick so you can't see the outline of the dresses too much. I'm really digging it for layering and I like it better than the DIY tied white tee look. SO if you are turned off by crop tops, consider it as a way to wear even more clothes and not just less!😂" —FerristOfThemAll

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 35 colors/patterns).

    Grab a similar top in plus sizes (0X–4X) for $24.99!

    2. A pair of light wash Levi's jeans that'll last for many seasons to come. These ribcage straight ankle jeans also happen to be TikTok famous for being cute on every body type!

    Promising review: "I was nervous to wear these at first because I usually only wear skinny jeans and don't branch out much with fashion trends. I like to stick to 'safe/boring' styles. But after trying them on and testing them out, I discovered they are LITERALLY my favorite pants... I can literally wear them ALL different ways. Strappy heals, flats, loafers, vans, booties, you name it. I am SO pleased and I feel so confident wearing them. They fit my waist like they were tailored just for me. I have an hour glass figure and I LOVE how high and fitted the waist is. I ordered my usual size in Levi's and they fit great. A nice hug, but nothing uncomfortable. These pants are SO on trend right now. I encourage anyone to give them a try... you'll be pleasantly surprised!!" —Spades

    Get it from Amazon for $55.65+ (available in sizes 24–39 and 30+ color combos).

    3. A mini ruffle-hem dress because it's seriously instaworthy. The flowy, lightweight material makes it to comfortable wear, while all the color options make it hard to choose just one!

    BTW, many reviewers note you can wear this dress both ways meaning the "back" of the dress looks great as the front, too! You'll get a super cute cutout effect when you decide to wear it that way. 

    Promising review: "Great quality and style. You can wear it backwards too. You can also cover the back by not knotting it in the back as shown in the style. There are so many ways to style it if you get creative with it. It is stretchy around the neckline and back skirt and will likely fit you if you go based on the suggested measurements... The dress is not see-through and the fabric and stitch quality is great." —Katie

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 12 colors).

    4. A pair of platform sneakers to keep things cute and simple. These Amazon favorites come in TONS of everyday colors like black, white, gray, and an adorable rose (which is a very light pink).

    FYI: These sneaks tend to run a little big, so many reviewers suggest sizing a half size down!

    Promising review: "These black platform Superga sneakers are very comfortable, and are true to size. Definitely what I was looking for. The platform is just the right amount of height. Enough to give me the extra height I wanted without looking silly...These look perfect with my split-hem flared leggings. The sneakers feel good on, feet are supported, and the width is true as well. They are well made, durable, and are on trend. I am super happy with this purchase." —No Name Please

    Get it from Amazon for $27.67+ (available in sizes 6–10 and 30+ color combos).

    5. A comfortable pair of biker shorts that are the stylish, socially acceptable form of PJs we all love to wear (even with zero intentions of getting on a bike). They come in a ton of different colors and patterns, too!

    Promising reviews: "Highly recommend these shorts. Soft, thick, stretch material, not see through at all. Shorts are long enough to prevent chaffing and [are also] high waisted. I ordered a Large in black and the size fit as expected, true to size. Will be ordering another pair." —E. R.

    "These are my favorite biker shorts I’ve bought!... I love that they’re longer and they did not ride up at all. I didn’t have to do any always adjusting during my [spin class]. The top has a little bit of compression, but not so much that it’s uncomfortable when you sit...Highly recommend and I will probably buy more for the summer!" —Zachary Fiehweg

    Get it from Amazon for $20.98+ (available in sizes XS–5X and in 17 colors).

    6. A midi skirt with a side slit and a spring-y print (aka floral) all over. It'll pair perfectly with a whimsical blouse or plain white tee. All you need is a killer pair of shoes to radiate the perfect vibes!

    Promising review: "Cute midline split skirt. I’ve seen the trend but it’s been hard finding a skirt that fits in person so I came to Amazon. This is probably the third or fourth skirt of this type I ordered from various companies and this fits the BEST. It’s a great thin material, but not see through. The slit is the perfect balance between classy and sexy. I see it being worn with sandals, then boots and a sweater for the winter. I live in Florida so this is the perfect material for here. Not too thick." —sim simma

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available for XS–XXL and in 30+ colors).

    7. tiered dress because its sweet, simple, and classy. If you're wondering how to make this casual look a nighttime 'fit, just throw on a trendy leather blazer, a pair of chunky boots, and step out with your besties!

    Promising reviews: "This dress is perfect; so comfortable and cute. Can wear with sneakers or dress up with heels." —Paige Kim

    "Very comfortable and cool (great in hot weather), cute enough to dress up for wine tastings, and it has pockets large enough to hold your phone, keys, snacks (shrimp? You do you). A stranger even complimented me on it so 10/10 all around." —Mira

    Get it from Amazon for $41.93+ (available in sizes XXS–5X and in 13 colors).

    8. A pair of high-waisted lounge pants so comfortable, you might just wear them all season long.

    Promising reviews: "I love everything about this legging. It’s trending with the bell bottoms, high waist and not too tight …. It’s a great everyday wear, casual or a little dressy depending on adding the right pair of shoes and top and some accessories for the occasion." —MsTess

    "Love love love these. They are flared but not too much and they are so comfy. They look just like the ones I had back in 2006. They are my new fave leggings! need to buy all the colors." —Trickyjen

    Get it from Target for $20 (available in sizes XXS–4X and six colors, including gray).

    9. knit pullover and shorts set which includes a balloon-sleeve top that would look great with jeans on a night out and looks even better with the matching shorts while you chill on the couch.

    Promising review: "Perfect loungewear set! Shorts are a bit baggy but (luckily) the drawstring string at the waist is real. The slouchy fit is very comfy and relaxed. Sweater also looks super cute with jeans!" —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $40.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 20 colors and styles).

    10. A boxy T-shirt dress because it's an instant cute outfit without the effort. It'll look great with slippers and heeled boot alike, and I think that's what everyone wants in a fashion piece.

    Promising reviews: "I love this dress! The jersey fabric feels amazing and it’s a loose fit. I’m buying it in every color!" —AD

    "This dress is everything. It fits comfortably and as expected for an oversized style t-shirt dress. On me, this dress hits just above the knee. It’s held up perfectly through many washes. It can be dressed up with a cardigan and makes me feel super chic when I’m just lounging around the house." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.93+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 12 colors).

    11. A stylish overall jumpsuit to take a casual T-shirt to the next level. It's got deep pockets, has a comfy oversized fit, and even comes in tons of cute prints!

    Promising review: "I got this to be sort of a summer into fall transition item and I’m so surprised by how comfortable it is! If you like things to fit snugly on you, don’t bother getting this because it is loose everywhere unless you tighten it all the way, but it’s super breathable and comfortable! Especially for layering!" —Brie Parry

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes XS–5XL and 13 colors).
